Yeah, too bad the goalpost for arenas and Bronze keeps getting pushed up while it seems to not get easier to move up the ranks… another reason I currently don’t play. Well, if I will even go back beyond occasionally checking for a (daily) reward. The whole balance mess and that I kept frequently matched with Level 10+ opponents while I’m sitting there at Level 8/9 and asking myself why I even bothered also didn’t help.
You certainly have more tolerance for the BS than me with this game…
If I get matched up with someone many levels above me I just usually let it go and continue with other stuff, like reading the forum.
The game is extremely aggravating when you try to play against someone who has either grinded the game out more or has paid a ton of money,
I think the game is a disgusting example of where it is trying to push people towards gambling and thorwing large sums of money without thinknig and as such I don’t give them a single cent.
The recent update has made things better, but there is still so much inconsistency and rubbish, one example being that patch notes arent published on the PC version so we have to go to the website, and that hasn’t been updated since mid june,
If I wasn’t trying to get all/as many achievements in the Gears series as possible I wouldn’t touch it.
Given my experience after the first 2-3 weeks/months of it being out… I’d have spent more time not playing and always getting pushed back down because I was getting matched with opponents (ab)using the OP pins to hell and back or having broken team comps and/or being far more leveled than me who wasn’t spending money on the game, where player skill mattered very little vs using the OP pins or outright broken combinations of them.
Honestly not really missing it. The few times where I did have fun were either early on or far and few between.
Do you have problems with horde? I had a lot of disconnected errors in June-July, I even send a ticket and they answered saying they solved the issue for horde. I had almost no problems until last week. If I play 10 horde matches, 2 or 4 I got the message of disconnection and obviously lost that thumper. There was 1 time that I got the message just after finishing first wave, and I didn’t get any pins.
The problem is that happened while I play with the 2nd account too. Now that thumpers are scarce, it feels worse than before, specially when there are horde events.
Yesterday I made a mistake and level up my account to level 16.Now my 2nd account is level 15 with almost 5000 EXP. It will be months until my 2nd account reach lvl 16 (The moral of the story is not to keep my account so close to lvl up until my 2nd account is almost at my same EXP).
Also, I win 1 legendary pin (RAAM) playing RAAM unleashed, so I’m very happy with the new rewards for playing horde. Let’s see if today I win another legendary while helping my crew to reach a good spot on this horde event.
Since “new boxes” update, I didn’t find Coin Fortune thumpers and daily missions about using skills, fortifications and projectiles.
I know that Coin fortune is obsolete now because RAAM Unleashed gives you the same account or more, and I don’t miss those daily missions. It was just a hindrance (my new english word learned today) to complete (mostly because if I did in versus I lost almost everytime).
